A new BikeHouston guide breaks it down alongside pedestrian and cyclist crashes and fatalities ahead of the November elections.

With the mayor and all 16 city council seats up for election this November in Houston, the nonprofit BikeHouston put together a guide that compares the city's most dangerous intersections and streets with city spending. 

Overall, sidewalks and bikeways received just 5.1 percent of the $741 million street and traffic control budget from the capital improvement project expenditures for the fiscal years 2019 to 2023, according to the guide, with bikeways alone receiving only 0.8 percent.

The nonprofit also compared data at the district-level, looking at cyclist or pedestrian crashes and fatalities between 2013 and 2019 alongside council district service fund spending on bikeways and sidewalks for the 2016 to 2019 fiscal years. 

District I, which includes downtown and the Greater East End, had the highest number of fatalities at 65. And though 15 percent of the district's annual $750,000 service fund went toward sidewalks, according to the nonprofit, none went to bikeways. 

District D, which includes the Texas Medical Center, Museum District and Third Ward, had the most crashes involving a pedestrian or cyclist at 1,187 from 2013 to 2019. The district also had among the highest number of fatalities with 64 during the same years. The district spends 11 percent of its annual $750,000 service fund on sidewalks but none on bikeways, according to the nonprofit.

District J spent the largest percentage of its district service funds on sidewalks and bikeways at 26 percent. District B spent none of its district service funds on bikeways or sidewalks, according to BikeHouston's guide.
